    I'm using the macro below for my ExtraActionButton, but sometimes it fucks up and won't do anything and screws me all over. This happens especially when I am going to pass the Mark on Protectors to a player via mouseover or passing the ball on Sha of Fear (it's the same style). Do you see any flaws in the macro, or do you know how I can make it better?
    I don't know if the problem is caused by the macro or if it's something that interfere with the macro though.

    I still want the focus-part to exist as a priority, so it works for encounters like Windlord Mel'jarak in Heart of Fear, to use the ExtraActionButton on your focus.

    Code:
    /target [@focus,exists][@mouseover,help,nodead]
    /click ExtraActionButton1
    /targetlasttarget

    I'd guess you probably run into problems when you have a focus but you want to pass it to your mouseover.

    I cannot get the following macro to work:

    /cast [@Dark Shaman Acolyte, harm, nodead] [] Spell

    What really confuses me is that the following macros work perfectly:

    /cast [@focus, harm, nodead] [] Spell
    /cast [@mouseover, harm, nodead] [] Spell

    What am I doing wrong in the first macro ?

    That's a good guess, unfortunately that's not it because I don't use the focus-part at all. I just want it to be available when/if it will be needed in later tiers. So I am not sure what is causing this. Thanks for your reply though.

    You cannot target mobs by name in macros, only friendly players.
    That is not dead which can eternal lie.

    Thanks, I could get it to work with friendly units, so I feared it might be that, oh well

    I am back for more!

    This time i would like a macro for my feral druid.

    Currently im using this;

    #showtooltip
    /cast [nomodifier] Wild Charge; /cast [modifier:shift] Typhoon; [modifier:ctrl] Faerie Fire; [modifier:alt] Hurricane
    It works perfectly. But... I would like to know if its possible for the Wild Charge in human form to target nearest friendly player
    if i dont have anyone targeted.

    Sort of like safeguard choosing closest friendly player i guess!?

    Thanks in advance!
    Epic!

    If you are lucky enough to have a different type of pvp weapon to your pve one then you can use something like this instead.

    gun/bow/crossbow can be used.

    Code:
    /stopcasting
    /cast Kill Shot
    /cancelaura Deterrence
    /cancelaura Hand of Protection
    /cast [equipped:bow] Growl(Basic Ability)
    /petattack

    Is there a way to change the macro so that Growl only is cast when I'm equipped with the PVP gear?

    Thanks

    Looking for a Macro to use the "OpenAll" function of Postal.

    The button on the MailFRame does this, how do i call this Postal_OpenAll:OpenAll() function?
    /script Postal_OpenAll:OpenAll() doesn't work here.

    Where as Postal_OpenAll is
    local Postal_OpenAll = Postal:NewModule("OpenAll", "AceEvent-3.0")

    and the button
    button:SetScript("OnClick", function() Postal_OpenAll:OpenAll() end)

    So how do i call this function?

    If the button is globally named (/fstack it), you could simply do /click ButtonName.

    You are right, i suppose that will do for now but im still interested on how to actually use a function like this, not necessarily for use in a macro.

    Hey again, macrowizards.

    So I'm looking into reeeeeeeally simplifying my tanking experience on my protection paladin, by having a macro with a bazillion conditionals, that taunts in this priority:

    1. Taunts my enemy mouseover target.
    2. Taunts my enemy focus.
    3. Taunts my enemy target.

    4. Taunts the enemy target of a friendly mouseover.
    5. Taunts the enemy target of a friendly focus.
    6. Taunts the enemy target of a friendly target.

    I expect this to be hard to pull off, but if it works, don't worry about the 255 char limit, I have addons to work around that.

    #showtooltip reckoning
    /cast [@mouseover, nodead, harm, exists] [@focus, nodead, harm] [] Reckoning.

    4/5/6 are (as far as i know) impossible unless they are targeting whatever is attacking them
    Why read words when we can kill stuff the words tell us about?

    Yeah, that's why I wrote "the enemy target of". I've been using the macro you wrote for 1-3 for most of my other alts, including the paladin.

    Anyone knows a macro (or addon) that will hide the calendar button (GameTimeFrame) unless there is a new event pending?
